Christmas Tree of Hope

Donate Now Through!

The annual Children’s Fund Christmas Tree Of Hope was founded in 1976 to bring hope to kids and families struggling through the holiday season.

The campaign now serves as the primary fundraising mechanism for the Children’s Fund. Official “Christmas Tree Of Hope” trees are lit in Gore Park Hamilton and Burlington as symbols of our efforts during the Christmas season.

Every child should have an opportunity in life, and they should be able to have fun growing up… The Y108 Christmas Tree of Hope returns for its 46th year. To date, we have raised over 6.2 million dollars to help children’s organizations in our community. Proof, you can make a difference.
